Tanya is a trailblazing author, pioneering thinker and campaigner on digital wellbeing and tech ethics, and founder of the digital detox movement Time to Log Off.

“The pandemic’s wake-up call was that it gave us a glimpse of a future lived almost entirely through screens, isolated from those we love, growing lonelier and more disconnected day by day. We must urgently reset our relationship with tech.”

Tanya Goodin


Tanya is a highly experienced digital detox speaker, and speaker on digital wellbeing and tech-life balance, at literary and wellness festivals, in-store events, product and press launches and public events of all kinds.

Tanya’s clients range from festival organisers and sponsors, media companies, fitness and wellness brands, PR agencies, travel and hospitality companies, and event venue owners large and small.

She specialises in digital detox, digital wellbeing, wellness in the age of the smartphone and building a healthy, happy, relationship with technology.

Talks as a digital detox speaker, and digital wellbeing evangelist, include:

  • ‘Getting a better balance with screens’
  • ‘It’s complicated – untangling our relationship with tech’
  • ‘How to log off’
  • ‘Digital detox for a better life’
  • ‘How to break up with your phone’
  • ‘Wellness in the age of the smartphone’

During the pandemic Tanya’s public talks were given onscreen webinar style, but she is very much looking forward to getting back to face-to-face public speaking as we emerge from pandemic restrictions.

Tanya is experienced in talking to very large audiences, up to over 3,000, at festivals and events but she also enjoys smaller audiences where there is more opportunity for engagement and participation. Tanya’s speaking style is relaxed and entertaining, drawing out some of the humour of our over-connectedness with technology, and she focuses on giving plenty of practical tips to improve the audience’s relationship with their devices. She is also very happy to do book readings and book signings at events where requested.

“The feedback we have had from Tanya’s session was just how brilliant she was. The host found her professional and knowledgeable, other sources have told us that they felt they got lots of takeaways with lots of top tips. It was also incredibly well attended.”

Stop Staring at Screens!

"Perhaps the best compliment I can pay this is that as soon as I started reading this, my 13-year-old son started looking over my shoulder, and in short order said, "I want to read this as soon as you're done. And I want to do this."
